towo,
1.13.2.901 is 1.13.3 RC1

Does this happen consistently, or did it only happen once? These messages indicate that your GPU stopped responding.

Happened once.
I will try to reproduce it by upgrading again (i reverted to 1.13.2 to avoid this problem).

For the record,
I have not seen this crash again for about a week now.
There is an arch forum thread which could be the same problem though:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=158088

For me this seem to be a rare problem, i will get back if i run into it again.

I saw this problem again now, i.e. X hangs (100% cpu) when opening firefox tab.
I am now on xorg-1.14.0, nvidia-313.26 (GTX 460).
Bug report attached.
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (64.7 KB)

Your GPU stopped responding again. Do you have a different GPU you could try, by any chance? Is it firmly seated in the PCI-E slot, with appropriate power connectors attached? Finally, if you run nvidia-settings and open the temperature monitor page, what is the GPU temperature when the freeze occurs?

This happen very seldom so i dont think there is any idea to try another card.
Also, the following post here seem to indicate the same problem:
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/535519/linux/x-hangs-using-100-cpu-wait-and-mieq-overflowing-errors-in-logs/

There’s also this thread, this thread and possibly this thread which look they might be the same or a similar problem.

Second thread is in your list is mine … agree looks like it might it might be the same issue. Still waiting for a resolution.
